Optional extras:
Thermals - to wear under your caving suit if you're prone to getting cold
Waterproof jacket - for rainy weather
Towel - may get dirty if it's a wet, muddy cave
Money - for extra snacks or to go to the pub
Caving gloves - We can provide these but if you want your own, use some that are rugged, flexible and won’t soak up water. Usually heavy duty rubber gloves, DIY/workers gloves or gardening gloves.
